Fathers, Food Fun, and More

Good morning, Friends! Welcome back to Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink countdown! We're featuring some great new products for the men in our lives today. Masculine projects can be a challenge, but we're making them easy and fun with today's line-up! You're going to love how simple it is to create projects for the fellas in your life!

One quick note before we get started: I'm battling a major cold and all I want to do is climb back into bed, so please forgive my brevity. If you have any questions about today's projects just leave them in the comments and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

First up I have a Father's Day ensemble featuring King Of The Grill and the new Fry Box Die.

Father's Day Burger Ensemble

I've put together a video to introduce you to the Fry Box Die. It's fairly simple, but sometimes a video can really clear up any questions you might have.

I started with the card.

Father's Day Burger Card

I stamped my burger insides onto a panel of Rustic White cardstock. The "lettuce" image does double duty as bacon for those of you that want to build bacon cheeseburgers. The banner was stamped and adhered into place and the buns were added with foam tape.

I added a narrow strip of Harvest Gold cardstock before mounting the whole panel to a Terra Cotta Tile striped card front with foam tape.

The coordinating fry box came next.

Dad Fry Box

I began by die cutting the box from Simply Chartreuse cardstock. I heat embossed the Treat Box Tag Lines label shape on the front before assembling the box. The die cut letters were added to the front of the box with foam tape.

I wanted to line my box for an extra pop of color, so I die cut another box shape from Rustic White. I trimmed off the sides and bottom and stamped it with the Boxed Backgrounds: Stripes image. Then I added the narrower Terra Cotta Tile stripes with Background Basics: Super Stripes. Then, I simply adhered it into place with flat adhesive.

Next up I have another Father's Day ensemble - this one featuring the new Popcorn Bucket and the Snack Cup Box & Wrap.

Father's Day Popcorn Ensemble

I have another video introducing you to the Popcorn Bucket Die. Again, nothing earth-shattering, but it might help answer someone's questions.

I began with the Popcorn Bucket on this ensemble.

Packed Fresh Popcorn Bucket 1

I die cut four panels with the new Popcorn Bucket Die. I stamped each one with the Boxed Backgrounds: Stripes image using Pure Poppy ink. I used a stamp press and a piece of fun foam to make sure that I was getting the best impression possible.

I assembled the box and embellished it with a Treat Box Tag Lines label. The sentiments on the label are from the Treat Box Tag Lines mini set, the stars are from the Boxed Backgrounds: Stripes set. Then, I just filled it with popcorn. Easy!

Next came the seasoning wrap.

Popcorn Seasoning Container

I began by die cutting the and stamping the Snack Cup Box. I assembled it and embellished the top with a Treat Box Tag Lines label that I'd stamped with the Keep It Simple: Just For You sentiment. I used an embellished round paper clip to keep my Snack Cup Box closed.

Next, I die cut the Snack Cup Wraps from Hawaiian Shores patterned paper and adhered them to the seasoning ramekins. I stamped the tops with the types of seasoning before adhering them into place on the lids.

The ramekins fit right inside the Snack Cup Box nestled into little dividers.

The last part of this ensemble is the Father's Day card.

Movies & Popcorn Father's Day Card

I began by sponging Hawaiian Shores ink onto a white card base. Then I created a pocket on the card by trimming down a Popcorn Bucket panel and adhering it to the card base with foam tape.

Movies & Popcorn Father's Day Card2

I filled it with "popcorn" made from clouds that I sponged with Harvest Gold ink.

I added a glittered Shaped Sayings: Father's Day shape to the front of the popcorn box.

I too have a horrible cold - on top of being 8 months pregnant, so I really didn’t get out of bed today. I've been enjoying your videos and what the DT has done with your amazing new must haves. Hope you get feeling better quick!
